Decorative Patio's and Walkways
Many landscaping services do not offer decorative patio or walkway services, but you can be rest assured that we do here at Joliet Landscaping.
Adding or renovating a decorative patio or walkway on your property can easily be one of the very best things that you do to improve its look and value, and it also creates a pleasant environment for people to spend time and interact. It’s always nicer to walk from a street to your house via a concrete walkway, and it’s also always nicer to spend time with friends or family on a front or back patio versus on the ground.
Please read on to find out more about our decorative patios and walkways and the concrete options that we currently have available for each one:
Aggregate concrete, also commonly known as exposed aggregate concrete, is a type of decorative concrete that is very durable and also resistant to skids and marks. We create aggregate concrete by removing the top layer of cement, and then accessing the aggregate that is located beneath. Aggregate concrete does not cost a lot of money, and is very easy for us to set or layout.
Broom Finished Concrete
Broom finished concrete is designed to create a surface that is as high traction as possible and that is also good for water drainage. This is accomplished by the actual broom marks on the surface of the concrete, which will be running towards the drain. Even when it rains or g et slippery over the concrete surface, the broom marks will create much better traction so there are lesser odds of you slipping and falling. This is a good choice if you live in places that receive a lot of ice or rain from the environment, and is also a good option if you have kids who play in the front or back yards often.
If you truly want a decorative and nice looking design to your patio or walkway, then you should choose our colored concrete service. After all, who says that concrete has to be gray? We offer a diverse variety of colors for our concrete. Even though it costs extra money, the added prices will not be excessive and the design of your patio or walkway can effortlessly match the overall design of your home or property. We use pigments to color the concrete instead of powder or liquids. This is more durable and long lasting, and on top of that, it will be very vibrant as well. Just ask us what colors you need – we probably have it.
Stamped concrete is also known as textured concrete. This concrete is designed to replicate the look of other materials, including wood, flagstone, or tile brick. For entry ways into homes, pool decks, or outdoor patios, this is the perfect look to go with. There are numerous different colors and patterns that are available, and as the icing over the cake, it’s all significantly more affordable than real wood, tiles, or flagstones.
